Here is to 2013, another new start, and the year of the snake.

Here’s to 2013- May it be peaceful, happy, safe, healthy and profitable for all my readers. Let’s all hope so!

Thanks for your support this past year. The road was often blustery and meandered at times, but the prospects for 2013 are exciting  and yet to unfold. I’m very glad you partake in this journey with us here at The Botanical Beauties & Beasties. Thank you.  I hope you find the twists and turns of the road as fascinating and exciting as I do. Here’s to discovering 2013 and the hopes and dreams that The Botanical Beauties & Beasties hold.

“According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2013 is the Year of the Snake, which begins on February 10, 2013 and ends on January 30, 2014.  The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs.  It is the enigmatic,  intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animals Signs.  Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means that your family will not starve.  People born in the Year of the Snake are keen and cunning, quite intelligent and wise.  They are great mediators and good at doing business…” info from spring’s greeting cards…

So the snake is a GOOD thing, enigmatic,  intuitive, introspective, refined, clever, calculating and planing to achieve goals! The snake most resembles the dragon of all the zodiac signs, and in fact is sometimes even called “little dragon. That is good for the Dragon is thought to be the most powerful AND lucky of all the zodiac animals.
